that depends on your listview style. since you mention 3 columns I suspect it's a vsreport. in this case
for row X
column1 is lv.Items.Item[x].caption
column2 is lv.Items.Item[x].subitems[0]
column3 is lv.Items.Item[x].subitems[1]

so in your case that would translate to:
with lv.Items.add do
  caption := AddForm.edtOmschrijving.Text;
  SubItems.add( AddForm.thecombobox.text);

Hi Ciuly!

First of all thanks for you reply!

I can't get it working with three columsn...I must be overlooking somehting but I have no idea as to what that might be....

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  if (AddForm.ShowModal = mrOK) then
      with lv.Items.add do
  caption := AddForm.edtOmschrijving.Text;
  SubItems.add( 'blah');

This fills the first two columns....regardless of what I put into the second SubItems.Add

kind regards,
